Stimulus checks — up to $1,200 for individuals, $2,400 for joint taxpayers and an additional $500 for each qualifying child under 17 — will be based on information from your most recent tax filings, either 2019 or 2018 if you have not yet filed this season.

For those that aren’t required to file a tax return, TurboTax launched a Stimulus Registration Product to help you submit all the necessary information to the IRS so that you can quickly and easily get your money.
